COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Torpedo is an assertive American IPA deep reddish-gold in color, with a smooth and bready malt presence and over-the-top hop aromas. The beer has a solid bitterness and a massive hop flavor, yet remains easy drinking with a pleasant dry finish.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange-amber with a moderate white head. Aroma is woody hops with some light fruits and hint of citrus. Flavor is moderately bitter, woody hops with some resin, and a strong caramel and crystal malt backing. Fairly straightforward but well-made west-coast IPA.

MrMugs (30) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Pours golden with a slight beige head. Iím surprised I donít smell more of the hops in the aroma, but there is a good hoppy bitter flavor.

This is the first year-round release from Sierra Nevada and wow they got it right here. Ranks right up there with the best IPAs.

Fruity hops in both aroma and taste. Sticky palate. Standard American style IPA, competent, but mind-numbingly uninteresting after the first hoppy sip.

monkeychugg55 (940) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 Pours a clear copper with a soapy, slightly off-white head that lasts and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is fresh, piney, grassy, citric hops. Flavor is similar, and as it says on the bottle, perfectly balanced. Bitterness lingers a little, leaving me wanting more. Mouthfeel is nice and dense, and a little bit sticky. This is a really well made IPA. My new favorite

ndubs360 (114) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2009
bottle... pours a clear amber/gold with a nice head that retains throughout the sitting. Great citrus/ hop aroma. Palate is not too over carbonated and not too harsh. nice bitter finish.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2009
(Bottled) Clear amber with a medium, lacy head. Slightly stingy, flowery-nutty-hoppy aroma with grainy-gluey notes. Flavor is better with reasonably fresh, aromatic hops, and some bitterness in the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Slightly harsh, but not bad.

TBone (13446) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2009
Bottled (HBF2009, BB 02/2010). Clear amber color, good beige head, Fresh hoppy (pine, grapefruit) aroma. Medium-bodied. Piney-grassy hoppy flavor, sweet malts. For now I think quite similar to some other SN products.
